to that newt gingrich debate in florida where he dispatched newt gingrich. he can be very good. i think he can have real highs, but also can have lows and say the darnedest things sometimes. >> i want to bring in georgia congressman tom price. good to see you, good morning. >> good to be with you. >> one of the things we are being told from inside the romney camp is he is getting ready for the 47% video. he knows the question is going to come up. this is what his advisor says. "we wouldn't be surprised, obviously, if that came up in the debate, and the governor's prepared, obviously, to respond about it. the fact is as governor romney has said repeatedly, he is running to help 100% of americans." he has said that. he said that repeatedly. it still resonating in a negative way with voters. what do you think he has to say about the 47% which has dogged his campaign since that video came out? >> remember, that was recorded during a fund-raising activity. it was a cut. this is an opportunity for governor romney to have his message come through unfiltered to the american people. that's, i think, wh
point. take a look at this little change with newt gingrich in florida in january. >> speaker gingrich was hired by freddie mac to promote them, to influence other people throughout washington, encouraging them not to dismantle these two entities. i think that was an enormous mistake. >> so he did it with a nice tone, said newt gingrich made an enormous mistake. i think that was a good way of romney pointing out the differences. what he does, though, is when he's in moment when there's a really candid exchange and he's not sure what to say, he can really look awkward. remember this? i bet you do. >> you were for individual mandate, my friend. >> you know what, you've raised that before, rick. and you're wrong -- >> it was true then, true now. >> rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks? $10,000 bet? >> that became a real problem for mitt romney because it only fed into the narrative that he doesn't care about your problems, he's rich and out of touch. if you bet $10,000, not such a good idea. >> that was a little awkward. >> it was a bad moment for him. and that happens to him when he's
lightweight here taking down newt gingrich's idea for a moon colony in florida. >> if i had a business executive come to me and say they wanted to spend a few hundred billion dollars to put a colony on the moon, i'd say you're fired. >> reporter: while romney stays behind closed doors, he's fine tuning his message softening his position on immigration. allowing the children of undocumented workers to stay in the country until immigration reform is passed. he's also out with a tough new ad linking president obama to former house speaker nancy pelosi. >> who will raise taxes on the middle class? barack obama and the liberals already have. >> reporter: fresh ammunition for tomorrow night's debate at an event earlier today in charlotte, north carolina, wolf, biden said how can the romney campaign justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried -- in his words, buried, the last four years. paul ryan at a campaign event in iowa just a few moments ago seized on those comments and said vice president biden said that the middle class has been buried. we agree. he goes onto say th
of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates
and newt gingrich himself -- at least 20 debates in the course of the -- >> he goes to the suburb of henderson to prep for the debate. and he will arrive in denver on wednesday. >>> the candidates agreed to four debates in all and they're coming up quickly. you can see there's a debate almost every week. the first is on the third, there's another on the 15th and 22. let's take a look at the first debate that is going on in denver. that will be at the university of denver in colorado. domestic policy is the topic of this event. and let's look at the only vice presidential debate. there's a meeting in hofstra university in new york. that will be from undecided voters asking the candidates on different topics. the second will be in boca raton, florida. that will focus on libya. you can watch here wednesday night on ktvu channel 2 news. that debate begins at 6:00 p.m. >>> president obama makes one fund raising visit next week. a week from monday he will host a dinner in san francisco. now to dine with the president will set you back $20,000 a plate. that campaign has not yet announced
speaker of the house newt gingrich not only endorsed todd akin on monday, he predicted other republicans will follow his lead. >> i don't see how any national republican in good conscience after tomorrow has any choice except to say that the choices for the republican nominee, i am for the republican nominee. >> reporter: gingrich went on to help akin raise money on monday. mike hucka bewill reportedly campaign with him too, but republican support like this has been hard to come by for the missouri congressman since he said this last month. when asked if abortion should be legal for victims of rape. >> it seems to me, first of all, from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: those comments outraged democrats and many republicans. they also reversed the momentum in the missouri senate race before the state was considered a likely republican win. now polls show that democratic senator claire mccaskill has the advantage. akin has repeatedly apologized for what he said and just
, a lot to deliver on the ticket, out there, active, and former speaker newt gingrich did the same thing two weeks ago, gave interviews. they are at the convention. i have not seen congressman paul yet do any events. [laughter] but rand paul has been supportive. governor perry has done a lot for him, helped him raise money, welcomed him to texas. i have not seen herman cain do anything yet. generally speaking, i have seen the two other finalists newt gingrich and rick santorum visible, and i have heard the other ones have been or will with the exception of congressman paul, but rand paul is doing the right thing. i'm optimistic there's not division in the party. >> hello, thank you for what you do in our lives and in so many ways. i wanted you to elaborate on what was mentioned on your show today. i'm i literate about this issue having to do with the -- this jimmy carter appointed judge making a decision. please, start with square one and take us through. >> sure. >> thank you. >> after the obamacare case was decided by the supreme court and the law was upheld, cases challenging other pa
guess it was in florida with newt gingrich where he basically took gingrich's pants off on the issue of what was in his investment portfolio and won that state by a big margin. this is obviously tk- different. it's a national audience, not a republican audience, he has to win people over. it's a different kind of challenge over a sitting president who is pretty smooth performer. what john roberts said is right, debates sometimes make a difference but not very often. normally what happened in debates people for you going in are still for you coming out and not a lot of minds get chained. chris christie saying it could change everything, it could happen but not very much. martha: if somebody loses their pants it might be a game changer. we'll be watch that very closely. >> that depends, martha entirely on the design of the electri lecterns. >> we'll wait for the town hall format and hope for that perhaps. you just mentioned chris christie, what do you think he is up to by that comment? >> i have no idea and i'm sure the romney headquarters in boston, they are scratching their heads up
in manila. i think that has been taken. newt gingrich summed up the night, the winner on hump day will get a bump day. actually he said something else. both campaigns have set expectations fairly low. i wonder does obama know folks in the media are speculating over who will have the best zingers? >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who will have the best zingers. >> you are! >> i don't know about that. governor romney, he is a good debater. i am just okay. >> yes and i am an amateur as house boy rodeo. meanwhile obama and romney are not the only ones squaring off this week. >> i believe that is a metaphor for this election. i don't know what exactly it was they were holding on to with their teeth. i have to think that maybe it is our constitution. >> either way the pink wardrobe is not helping. it must be the arizona sheriff. >> jill, you are an entertainment reporter, but put on your political hat. i want to ask your advice, what should the candidates do? what do you think they sho
taken. newt gingrich summed up the night, the winner on hump day will get a bump day. actually he said something else. both campaigns have set expectations fairly low. i wonder does obama know folks in the media are speculating over who will have the best zingers? >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who will have the best zingers. >> you are! >> i don't know about that. governor romney, he is a good debater. i am just okay. >> yes, and i am an amateur as house boy rodeo. meanwhile obama and romney are not the only ones squaring off this week. >> i believe that is a metaphor for this election. i don't know what exactly it was they were holding on to with their teeth. i have to think that maybe it is our constitution. >> either way the pink wardrobe is not helping. it must be the arizona sheriff. >> jill, you are an entertainment reporter, but put on your political hat. i want to ask your advice, what should the candidates do? what do you think they should do? >> i understand they have been rehersing for two weeks and trying to study up and be natural and speak in sho
's be clear, mitt romney is a terrific debater. i mean, he des patched newt gingrich from the race in florida based on debate performances there. did the same -- >> and the president is also a good debater in spite of his pleas that he's just okay. i don't think anybody believes that. brad woodhouse. >> he's all right. >> again, again, the expectations game. it just never ends. it's going to be a long five weeks. brad woodhouse. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >>> you can watch complete coverage of the first presidential debate this wednesday night. it starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. and on cnn.com. still ahead this morning on "starting point," a stunning interview. arnold schwarzenegger talking candidly about his affair with his house keeper and other indiscretions as well. also, did he even ask his estranged wife maria shriver to preview the memoir? we're going to talk to his press secretary, his former press secretary up next. and today's get real, tell you why a teacher cut a 7-year-old student's hair four inches, at least, without even bothering to run it by her mom!
of you as a flip-flopperment attack gingrich constantly, call him a washington insider, a fannie/freddie lobbyist. make him so apoplectic he can't talk. >> i think it was a matter of focus. and assisting in terms of what needed to happen strategically. i think in this debate he's got to do the same thing. he's got to be aggressive with the president and the president's policies. if the debate becomes about anything other than the economic policies and the vision in terms he wants to lay out in terms of where he wants to take the country economically, he is losing. >> you mentioned debate about his economic policy. one of the chief criticisms that has been thrown at the governor at this point is that his economic policy is fairly vague. he hasn't laid out specific loopholes. and there are other parts of the plan that haven't been laid out in great detail. if the president strikes back, if that -- if the president comes at governor romney with that, what is going to be the governor's response? >> well, first of all, i think that's a myth. i think he has laid out a pretty specific e
santorum or newt gingrich or rick perry. always debating four or five people who were really sort of aiming at him. he was the frontrunner throughout. barack obama had four debates against hillary clinton, one on one in the 2008 democratic primary, then three debates against john mccain. it's a different dynamic than to be the frontrunner where four or five people are aiming at you throughout a debate. >> here we are on the eve practically of the first debate and it's supposed to be an economic, domestic policy. >> right. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet amid this upheaval our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them, not moving them in a direction that protects our people or allies. and paul ryan just now on the laura engram radio show, saying this about afghanistan. >> that echos also what john mccain said on "morning joe" today. are
and the way he acquired it and mocked former representative newt gingrich's dream of building a colony on the moon. you know, what brad that was the night, remember that night, that really ended gingrich's run and it cleared the way for romney's victoria tree. does governor romney tomorrow night need to pull off similar drama? >> i think he's got to be forceful, direct, yet respectful to the president. i happen to believe substance triumphs style every time. we saw the president recently get rattled when a univision presenter questioned the president respectfully but directly on immigration. the president was clearly annoyed. and i think romney to be effective must go on offense. it's not enough to say how bad things are in america because if it wasn't for bad news the president won't be making news on the economy or anything else. we all know how bad things are. romp knee has to tell how good things can be under his direction an has to be specific on policy. gregg: santita in the rare moment when the president actually holds a news conference and we have video of one of his news confe
? >> that is the third option, and that is to criticize the question as newt gingrich did very effectively in the republican primaries when asked about marital problems. >> it could have said i would kill the son of a -- [laughter] >> one of the purposes of the debate was to actually try to learn something about the candidate you do not already know. what we argue about him is vacation reading included swedish land use planning. i agree absolutely with sandy. i would have wanted to kill him, but we are a nation of laws. he apparently had a brother that was killed in an automotive accident and another relative who was mugged. as of was that question was and of prepared as he was, that is the nature of the presidency. things will happen for which you are not prepared, and i thought it may have been an unfair glimpse, but it was also telling, and i defend the question. >> what does the canada do when a question like that is posed the comes out of left field? it does reach to sometimes the heart of your character or personality? >> i think he did the right thing. there was no pause. there was
also depends on was moderating. newt gingrich himself just the other day said that he is the best debater he beat all of republicans said they think he's a terrific debater. >> is a game on both sides know you better, know your better. so the way it goes to lower the expectations going into the big debate which is the first debate on wednesday and as we look at the polling numbers off before the debate this is the latest from we it real clear politics and their number shows president obama with a four point lead over romney at this point. so get ready for the debate in you could watch it right here of the highlights on kron 4 and we're also will bring the entire debate on our, has won 93 channel and digita one south 4.2. >> voter registration from in florida. the state's republican party hired strategic ally consulting is a third-party burned to hit the street and register new voters. there is a problem the firm is now under investigation for using some questionable voter registration forms. the thousands of packages that went out will be checked. to make sure they are correct. to
mean on average. 1/3 of their ads include factual inaccuracies. their ads against newt gingrich which says he supported funds for abortion in china which was not true. his opponent can say i don't know why they ran that ad because it is not true. you have the real potential to move the smaller elections with false information. because it is coming from super back -- supertax, less accountability. you cannot blame directly on the -- on your opponent. we have seen some pretty slimy at coming out of these outside groups. >> tv stations can refuse ads. they cannot refuse ads from a candidate only from outside groups. they almost never do. potentially, someone can be sued for libel if they are not correct. >> you can go pretty far on someone's record and not incur libel. >> we're used to races where candidates are broadcasting at each other. there was press attention in the mccain campaign and-john mccain was being. we did a survey and 60% or less of the more negative. we said the obama people were more negative than mccain. he had so much money he to run negative ads as well as the positi
to be out here with todd. >> reporter: former speaker of the house newt gingrich not only endorsed todd akin on monday, he predicted other republicans will follow his lead. >> i don't see how any national republican in good conscience after tomorrow has any choice except to say that the choice is the republican nominee for senator mccaskill, i am for the republican nominee. >> reporter: gingrich went on to help akin raise money. mike huckabee will reportedly help him, too. but republican support like this has been hard to come by for the missouri congressman since he said this last month when asked if abortion should be legal for victims of rape. >> it seems to be -- first of all, from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: those comments outraged democrats and many republicans. they also reversed the momentum in the missouri senate race before the state was considered a likely republican win. now polls show that democratic senator claire mccaskill has the advantage. akin has r
christie we all know and lovement remember in the primary debate when newt gingrich would take a shot at the press every time and that was everybody's favorite moment in those debates. chris christie does it well. does he it with a little softer touch, but still packs a punch. >> steve: we'll be watching wednesday night to find out how many zingers are included. thank you, ma'am. >> eric: you know where you can find a lot of zingers? >> steve: i know! when people aren't sticking their tongue out. >> gretchen: we'll be watching "the five." coming up next, brave zoo keeper has what it takes for a buffet in the swimming pool (they're not supposed to be in this country burkses that not stopping one state to give illegal immigrants a license to drive.

akin staying in, we saw newt gingrich helping to campaign with him. might we see any outside money headed into the todd akin campaign? >> well, from the perspective of the national republican party, they're hedging their bets. they'll wait and see if it is close. sources i've talked to said they don't think it will be, but they're going to not close the door. but with regard to outside groups, one of the biggest ones, crossroads, karl rove's group, they insist they will not spend money there but there are other outside groups. one was backed by senator jim demint. they did a poll of their supporters online, and they all said that they believe that they should back todd akin and i think we have a shot of the website. so far they have raised $138,000 in a week online. so, you know, that's not going to win the race for todd akin, but it is more money than he had before and we'll see how much money they raise in the next month. >> that is missouri. let's talk maine. you and i have talked about senator olympia snowe, on this show, i want to say last week. she was talking about how -- ju
of these pacs may have come in the primaries were they really transformed republican primaries. newt gingrich and rick santorum almost certainly were not at stake in the race as long as they did after losing several contests in each case with out a million air or four backing them with checks as high as $5 million. as a result, the republican primary was much more prolonged than it would have been. romney and his friends have to spend much more money than they expected defending him in those early months. the whole dynamic of what we are used to wear we have a nominee, we are up in it for a few weeks. since then, the super pak sets and in a huge wave is sumner. when romney wins, he does not have the money he needs to compete with obama. he relied heavily on super pacs to do is advertising. this is not technically coordinated advertising. trevor can get into the realities there. it had some obvious positive affect inholding parity with the president as he issued a blistering attack against romney this summer. it has shown to have clear weaknesses. both campaigns will tell you this. the super p

santorum or maybe newt gingrich who said he is the single worst candidate to oppose the president on healthcare because he's the grandfather of the bill himself. i think he doesn't have credibility with the public on that issue. tell me i'm wrong. >> he does have credibility. he said he's going to repeal it as president in conjunction with the republican congress. he's got credibility. and he's going to take this issue to president obama. >> eliot: there are parts of it he likes, kids staying on their parent's health insurance until age 26 and pre-existing conditions. everybody knows you can't have those without paying for it. the way to pay for it is the individual mandate which is the third rail of politics. we'll talk about it later in the show. so mitt romney has put himself into an intellectual box even if it may not be a political case. >> i think he will make the case for repeal in the debates. every post still shows they want repeal. >> eliot: we'll talk about it more in a minute. up next, a preview of another
